Summit County and the Town of Breckenridge recently purchased the site of another hotel to convert into housing for the local workforce.
The LOGE Hotel, built in 1961, is located outside of Breckenridge in unincorporated Summit County. It has 38 rooms and was purchased for $6 million, a purchase evenly split between the county and the town of Breckenridge, according to a statement.
The site is on Tiger Road near the Summit Stage bus stop, an ideal location for workforce housing, said David Rossi, acting director of communications for Summit County Government.
According to Rossi, the joint purchase was for the hotel site – not just the building – meaning more development is possible in the future.
It’s too early to tell what improvements will be made, Rossi said, but the county is considering upgrades and modifications. He added that zoning laws need to be adjusted and inspections are needed before decisions are made about building additional or upgrading units.
While it’s also too early to tell what the process for filling the space will be, Rossi said the hotel’s first use will most likely be short-term housing for city and county employees.
Going forward, Rossi said housing placement for the space will be very similar to other county housing projects, with an apply and waitlist approach.
